    Lovely place and staff. Only thing was the bed is short! If your 5’10 or above it is tiny haha. My boy and I are tall so it was an interesting experience to try to sleep on the little bed

    Very clean, delicious breakfast, beautiful hotel. The tours they offer and transportation they arrange was much more expensive than what you could find elsewhere in town.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Located besides the main street. Few meters walkable from the car parking ( if you own or rented a car). I liked the food ordered for dinner. Breakfast is average. Good pool, which can be used any time of the day. It was good to use the after a tiring evening walk around the stone town. Wifi was Ok. No elevator, so you need to climb all the way up. So if you are travelling with kids, this may be of a concern. The room was a bit dark due to its traditional style arrangement. We were allowed to check out few hours late, when we informed about of flight delay. Julia was very welcoming :) Overall: Recommended.
